Parfois Opens in Centrio



Hey guys! Last weekend, I was invited to attend the opening of Parfois branch in Ayala's Centrio Mall in my city, Cagayan de Oro. (one of the million great perks of being a CdoBlogger
They gave us gifts to bring home as well. Thank you so much, Parfois Philippines!

There were tons of great loot that, if I had finances then and there, I would have bought! But as for now, I may have to continue convincing my mother to buy me a much needed accessory for our travel plans this May. (It's going really well, if I may say so myself) And it's a great thing that we (bloggers and I) have a discount (can somebody tell me until when?) so it makes the convincing and begging even more forcible.  Read more to see what went on that day!


A little background on Parfois

Parfois is one of Europe's leading fashion accessories brand and was actually founded by a Portuguese by the name of Manuela Medeiros (ooh! Another Portuguese hall-of-famer I'm adding to The List next to C. Ronaldo) in 1994. This branch is one of their 340 around the world. Their prices are pretty much affordable, ranging from Php 200 - Php 2000.


On a side note.. "Parfois" actually means "Sometimes" in French 

- Some say "parf-wa" but the actual pronunciation in Francais would be Pearf-wa. There's no other way to spell it. French people have weird "r"s. We know that Italians roll them but the French dont spit them out. Haha. Seriously, they pronounce it like it's stuck in the back of their tongue.
- And another fun fact: the opposite of Parfois is Toujours which means always or forever.

Okay enough cours des francais! Without further ado, here are the high qualities I took (using Tita Grace's CANON 550D) that day...
